Hey everyone, totally new to this (I only found this site a few hours ago!), but after reading quite a few posts it seems I've come to the right place to get the support and motivation needed to get me through the next 12 weeks! I weighed myself today for the first time (new scales) since before I was pregnant and I'm currently the heaviest I've ever been. My little girl is 8 weeks old today and she's doing brilliantly so I don't want to jeopardise my milk supply by fad dieting... this 12 wk plan sounds sensible and realistic in achieving my goal. She's baby number 3 and I have two toddlers aged 3 and 2 so you can see, the past 5 years has pretty much consisted of pregnancy and breastfeeding for me - my body has yoyo'd from under 9st to over 12st three times! (Sounds crazy). It's our 5 yr wedding anniversary in November and my goal is to be my wedding day weight which means I have 2 stone to lose. Getting fit is also really important as I want more energy to keep up with the babies. Apart from running around after them I don't do any other exercise at the moment, but looking to change that by starting the couch 2 5k on week two. Hubs is joining me (he gained more pregnancy weight than me! 😁) so any family meal planning tips would be welcomed. Hoping to hear from other mums in the same boat... feeling really positive - hope it sticks!
